    Damn, the pictures of the red variant did not do it justice. Check out how nice the red looks in the video:

    This is also true for the zebrawood and spalted custom 24s. PRS should fix their picture game.

    Let's be totally honest: if THIS was a standard finish/bridge it'd be "Game Over" here at SSO.....[​IMG]

    yeah, people would complain it's too expensive for starters.

    Let's be totally honest, if that was a standard finish / bridge there are maybe 4 guys on here that would buy one and 40 that would bitch about the specs and / or the price being the reason they won't buy one :rofl:

    Breaking news, if $800 MIK guitar featured $5k MIA guitar appointments, it would be popular. More at 11!

    We'll definitely need pics. I don't feel like either PRS or sweetwater photos capture what they will really look like. Which finish did you order?

    Edit: just ordered a grey black. It'll look nice next to my se Holcomb

    What is the neck finish? Is it satin?

    Guys, shut up. You're making me GAS for a SVN with a PRS Trem.

    My body couldn't handle that shit.

    My Tremonti Custom with a new nut is fucking amazing. I loooove the trem.

    Actually, all I was referencing was the general cosmetic appearance and the trem......some folks get way too wrapped up in trying to make an arguements out of everything.

    My bad... wouldn't expect PRS to do a fade on an SE though since it's a more involved finish process :2c:

    I figure if Rondo is putting (admittedly shitty) multicolor fades on $125 guitars, WMI can probably pull off a transparent amber to red fade that's in the same quality ballpark as the flame tops just released.

    Totally realize it won't be a Maryland quality deal, I was JUST commenting on the general aesthetic of it all.

    psssh if cort guitars can get fades (not amazing ones but they still have em), why can't SEs?

    Dragon's breath fade is one of my favorite finishes, I'd love an se in that finish.

    Not to be the nattering nabob of negativity, but exactly what is it that makes companies think that people who play more than six strings are clamoring for a black or black-cherry finish? I used to just think it was a Schecter thing, but those colors must really fly off the shelves. It's just too plain Jane for me.

    apparently nobody told them that fluorescent pink is the most metal color ever.
